Residential tenancy eviction update

The NSW Government plans to introduce a six-month transition out of the temporary COVID-19 rental eviction moratorium, which expires on 26 March 2021.

A six month transition period means COVID-19 impacted tenants who accrued rent arrears between April 2020 to March 2021 will not be subject to the standard tenancy eviction rules.

Find out more about the eviction moratorium transition.

Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment

The Australian Government's Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment is a lump sum payment to help you during the 14 days you need to self-isolate, quarantine or care for someone. If you need longer-term help, you may be eligible for other payments.

The Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment is for people living in NSW who can't earn an income because they must self-isolate, quarantine or care for someone who has COVID-19.

To be eligible, you must be directed to self-isolate or quarantine by NSW Health.

Apply for the Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment.
